A new ministry at Grace Chapel will be introduced this coming Sunday during worship. It is called the HOPE ministry.
HOPE stands for Helping Others Pray through Emergencies.
The HOPE ministry will focus on helping those who contact Grace Chapel with an emergency need. We have had a taste of this ministry since Grace Chapel got started, but in the last two months there has been a definite increase of needy people seeking help from Grace Chapel.
The HOPE ministry will begin with giving tangible help to the needy to pay for emergency bills they might have. But it will not stop there.
The HOPE Team has been put together to follow up those we help with prayer and a personal contact. This HOPE Team will be introduced to the church this Sunday.
But right now, we all can ask the Lord to open our eyes and hearts to those in the most need around us and make a new commitment to be the Lord’s hands and feet showing His gospel grace and loving Lordship.
I don’t know about you, but Jesus calling his disciples “O ye of little faith” has not always set well with me. It sounds like name calling or manipulation or even judgment.
Well this phrase, “O ye of little faith,” occurs in the Sermon on the Mount and three other places in the gospel accounts and we are going to get to the bottom of it. What in the world is Jesus doing here?
How did it affect the disciples? What does it mean to you…
O ye of little faith?
I have personally been challenged by this. I wonder if you will be.
